From the Publisher...this is a wonderfully stimulating and comprehensive collection of essays on development economics. It deserves to be on the shelf of every serious scholar of development economics and to be closely read by graduate students working in the area.
... an impressive accomplishment.

If one ambitiously attempts to make an overall evaluation of these two volumes,one must conclude that the two volumes are excellent and extremely worthwhile for all readers who are interested in development economics. Not only are almost all important problems tackled and very well presented in these two volumes, but also one learns how difficult the various problems of developing countries are and how difficult it is to achieve certain progress in the development of such countries. All chapters have an extremely good reference list so that one easily finds more literature should one desire to study specific problems.

..."One can reasonably expect all development economists to consult this volume extensively, but, as should now be clear, there is something here for everyone. The quantitative tools certainly have applicability beyond development economics, and the thought-provoking chapters on institutions and land will be of wide interest."
..."On the whole, list the Ist and II nd volumes, the IIIA and IIIB volumes will be regarded as a collection of some excellent and useful surveys by many leading authorities in the field of development economics. ...together, they make excellent reading and sources of very useful references."
